Researcher Profiles

Dr Kate Sanders

ARC Future Fellow
Faculty of Sciences

Kate's research focuses primarily on trait evolution and speciation in squamate reptiles, and the evolution of sensory systems in the transition to aquatic habitats in snakes. Her research has a substantial fieldwork component focused primarily in Indonesia and Western Australia; this has led to the discovery of new species, and generated ecological and distributional data that have contributed to conservation assessments.

Thomas Eldredge

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

Tom is a junior doctor in South Australia currently pursuing a career in surgery. After graduating Medicine at the University of Adelaide, he undertook his internship at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, taking a keen interest in teaching and subsequently being appointed as a Clinical Associate Lecturer of the University of Adelaide. Currently undertaking a Master of Philosophy (Surgery), Tom is researching the effects of bile reflux in the setting of bariatric surgery.

Dr Fien Degryse

Senior Research Fellow
Faculty of Sciences

Fien Degryse joined the Fertiliser Technology Research Centre (FTRC) at the University Adelaide in 2010. The FTRC focuses on the understanding of fundamental processes controlling fertiliser efficiency, using a combination of chemical, spectroscopic and radio-isotopic techniques, as well as pot and field trials. Her other research interests include speciation, mobility and bioavailability of metals in terrestrial and aquatic systems.

Mrs Janet Wall

Senior Research Officer
Faculty of Arts

Janet Wall is currently the Centre Administrator for the Hugo Centre for Migration and Population Research and the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning (CHURP) at the University of Adelaide. Prior to this she was a Senior Research Officer in the Department of Geography, Environment and Population.

Dr Dan Peet

Biochemistry and CMGD Lecturer
Faculty of Sciences

Dr Peet is a Senior Lecturer in Biochemistry at the University of Adelaide. His research interests are centred on understanding the molecular events within cells that underpin the genomic response to hypoxia. The cellular response to hypoxia is essential for many physiological processes in normal development and adult physiology, and contributes to the pathophysiology of major human diseases, including cancer, myocardial and cerebral ischaemia, pulmonary hypertension, and wound healing.

Mr Xiaolin Cui

HDR Student
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

I have worked on various engineering related projects from chemical engineering to biomedical engineering. As a result, I have fresh eyes to identity and solve problems from different angles. I am specialises in medical science, chemical engineering, process engineering, pharmaceutical engineering, polymer science, life science and material engineering. And I has relevant experience of commercial projects and fundamental research commercialisation.

Nathan Watson-Haigh

Faculty of Sciences

Nathan has almost 15 years experience in the field of bioinformatics with expertise in genomics, transcriptomics, system biology, phylogenetics, bioinformatics training, Linux systems administration, high-performance and cloud computing.
